The Village (2004)

Question: Given that Ivy could see some people's "color", did she know it was Noah chasing her in the woods?

Answer: It is presumed that Ivy cannot see Noah's color as she was unaware that he was inside of her coat closet after he had hidden there during a game of hide and seek. In the scene she is seen hanging her coat inside of a closet occupied by Noah. She puts the garment inside and goes about her business completely unaware of his presence. This indicates that he does not give off a color.

Chosen answer: This was left very ambiguous. Ivy knew the "creatures" were not real because her father had told her it was a ruse the elders used to frighten the youths to keep them from leaving the village. However, it was mentioned by one of the elders that the creatures were based on old stories, myth and legend that's why she was freaking out when her cloak was darken by the mud and why she became frightened by Noah's monster costume. As for her sight of color it does not appear that Ivy knows it is Noah who is chasing her.

Ivy could smell Noah wearing the suit. She made a statement in the shed not to be used that there was a strange smell in there. I imagine some sort of latex smell given off by suit. I think. I had figured it was a professionally made movie costumes the elders brought to Covington woods when they first settled. But it is also possible I guess they could have been crafted after the fact. But either way she was able to recognize Noah by the scent. I believe.

Answer: She stated in the beginning she couldn't always see color in people.
